In a recent post published in Mekar, Thierry Sanders highlighted the top 10 reasons to invest in Indonesia.
Here’s a snapshot of his Reason #4 – Growing Gov’t support for Sustainable Development Goals:
Targets have been set on renewable energy, deforestation, palm oil expansion, women’s empowerment, poverty reduction, nutrition, maternal health, water, sanitation, etc.
The government has put in place BUMDes (village financing companies); a blended finance policy and has successfully raised USD 2 billion via a “Green Sukuk”.
On another front, closing the gender gap, although by no means complete, has resulted in marginally more women being financially included (banking services) than men in Indonesia: Jokowi’s first Cabinet had a record 9-women ministers.
